Nissan is conducting this Voluntary Safety Recall Campaign on certain specific 2007-2012 Versa vehicles to replace the front passenger air bag inflator. This service will be performed at no charge to owners for parts or labor.
Nissan has assigned identification numbers PM657, PM665, PM676, PM818, PM823 and PM826 to this campaign. The correct campaign ID number must appear on all communications and documentation of any nature dealing with this campaign.
It is the dealer’s responsibility to check Service Comm or Dealer Business Systems (DBS) National Service History for the campaign status on each vehicle falling within the range of this voluntary safety recall campaign which for any reason enters the service department. This includes vehicles purchased from private parties or presented by transient (tourist) owners and vehicles in a dealer’s inventory. Federal law requires that new vehicles in dealer inventory which are the subject of a safety recall must be corrected prior to sale. Failure to do so can result in civil penalties by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While federal law applies only to new vehicles, Nissan strongly encourages dealers to correct any used vehicles in their inventory before they are retailed.
